Venture Insight

The ultimate walking safari experience to immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and smells of the bush – your senses all alert walking for five days along the Mupamdazi River.


Luangwa in Zambia

Marking the end of the Great Rift Valley South Luangwa National Park is one of the last unspoiled wilderness areas and possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa with ox bow lagoons, woodland and plains of the valley hosting a huge concentration of game + over 400 species of birds.

Sharpen your senses

Walking through the bush is a completely different experience when every sound, every movement – the flap of a bird’s wing, a tail swishing through the tall grass – makes every fibre of your body in tune with nature.

Sundowners and waterholes

Remote + small camp, Nsefu Camp dates back to the 50s with superb river views that include a terraced area where game graze during the day. Now this is a place for sundowners where the bar is tucked in beside a huge dormant termite mound that overlooks a waterhole.
